Drawing frenzy...Wish I could hide on an island somewhere for a week (or 12) and keep going without interruption. Except for rope practise and walks...sigh...;)

Air doodles

Since the new year started, I've been thinking about trying to paint again. About a year ago I decided not to paint anymore until I felt my drawing skills were more accurate. They are definately better now (after much practise, many life drawing classes and hours spent looking at other peoples work) and so I got my watercolours out yesterday. I remembered immediately that I really don't get on with watercolour - it feels very fixed. I have preferred using oils in the past, not just for the feel of them, but the results I got as well.
Still, here are some doodles of aerial figuers. It's an image theme I want to stay with...But I clearly need to spend this year learning how to use paint!
